was dead false. >> sean: it's not just carney, too. >> it's susan rice. >> sean: it's hillary clinton. >> let's go to susan rice. five days after this terrorist attack, she is booked on five national news shows and goes out and uses the exact terminology, spontaneous, not premeditated, not preplanned at all. they were told to go out there by people who must have known the intelligence, therefore using these people, these administration people to deceive and mislead unless they were utterly stupid about what happened. we ought to find out who told ms. rice to go out and say that, who told carney to go out and say that, because we know it was ultimaterly false. it was complete a terrorist attack. >> sean: here's the problem. this president still is blaming this youtube movie trailer that was released in july. he's still blaming them. we have the mother of one of our navy seals killed here, and she's demanding answers, as should the ambassador's family, the other navy seal and the other person. banghazi is a hotbed for terrorist training, pat. this is not brain surgery. >> sean, let me t
that when susan rice was sent out to tell us it was in response to a video and just a spontaneous act. what, please put this in perspective for us. >> well, let's have the most generous interpretation possible for this administration. when eli lake broke the story, why i think it is wrong, this is only explanation possible. when eli lake broke the story. megyn: "daily beast". >> yeah for "the daily beast", soon after the attack we had a pretty good bead on some of the individuals involved in the attack. another one said we had two kinds of intelligence on one guy. we believe we had enough to target him. these guys have return address, camps people and variety of things we could do. if you had intelligence about a possible terrorist attack would make sense not to tip off al qaeda that we knew so we could have element of surprise if we wanted to respond to it. the problem with that is, one we didn't respond. it has been 17 days and there have been no drone strikes on al qaeda camps or, return address hasn't been hit anywhere. two, there is difference w hole holding intelligence and lying abou
in banghazi. the question is why did they send susan rice out? why i was it necessary for her to go out on five shows and say it was spontaneous. why not saying we have an ongoing investigation. i'm not going to say more. we're going to learn more. >> secretary clinton believes that ambassador rice has done a superb job. let's just start that. we completely reject calls here in this building. >> at a time when most americans would want to rally around our country at the death of four americans serving our country, instead we've had this bizarre response, which only leads to me believe there was, number one, there was gross negligence involved, or the president doesn't want us to realize libya may be a failed state in the fbi agents can't even make into banghazi. >> i watched the presentation. i thought it was amazing that someone in her position would go on with that degree of certainty, that fast, and that authoritatively and be that wrong. >> did you know the chairman of the homeland security committee has asked for susan rice to resign? does the president have 100% confidence in susa
? was it's a lie? >> i think that susan rice needs to step down. one of two things occurred. either she saw the intelligence and decided she was going to nuance or tweak and say what she said, calling it's a response to the video, or she was told by those above her to go out and say this was a response to the video. >> eithe either ambassador rices deliberately misleading the american people or showed such a lack of knowledge or sophistication she shouldn't told that position anymore. >> today we see things differently. i mean, we see the thing unravel in banghazi. the question is why did they send susan rice out? why i was it necessary for her to go out on five shows and say it was spontaneous. why not saying we have an ongoing investigation. i'm not going to say more. we're going to learn more. >> secretary clinton believes that ambassador rice has done a superb job. let's just start that. we completely reject calls here in this building. >> at a time when most americans would want to rally around our country at the death of four americans serving our country, instead we've had this bizar
lawmaker to call for u.n. ambassador susan rice's resignation. he objects to her going on the sunday talk shows two weeks ago and stating that the libya attack appeared to be a spontaneous reaction to an anti-muslim video when there was already evidence that it may have been a terror attack. >> either ambassador rice was deliberately misleading the american people or showed such a lack of knowledge and sophistication she shouldn't hold the position anymore. the entire administration has misinformed the american people, misinformed the world, and she was their spokeswoman, our representative to the world. virtually everything she said was wrong. >> others are praising ambassador rice, a spokesman for president obama saying she's done extraordinary work at the united nations, and the state department says she provided the information there was at the time. another statement, i'm particularly troubled for calls for ambassador rice's resignation. she's a remarkable public servant for whom the liberation of the libya people has been a personal issue and public mission. she's an enormously capa
it gets susan rice off the hook. peter king is calling for her to resign. does that get her off the hook for coming out five days after this happened on five different sunday shows and saying this was spontaneous protest related to this film. i don't think so. we all know what james clapper's office said. we know that they have been evolving on this. but it took five days. >> not only that what she said was unequivocal. why not just say the safest thing that all administration say when they don't want to release information which is the investigation is continuing. we don't have all the information. >> why jump to the conclusion that this is about a film and each at the president's u.n. speech this week he highlighted this film through throughout this u.n. speech leading many to believe that the main issue is this youtube clip that seems relatively insignificant in the grand scheme of siblings charles krauthammer also had a similar take on this and he responded to that james clapper statement last night. take a listen. >> well, you read the dni -- dnr statement it's a cover your rump sta
.n. ambassador susan rice to resign. king says she needs to pay the consequences for misleading americans about what happened in libya. wasting no time, obama administration officials and congressional democrats are coming to rice's defense, saying she went on the sunday talk shows and gave the "best information and best assessment that the administration had at the time." national security council spokesman tommy vitt just-released statement saying rice has done extraordinary work at the united nations and for the american people. the president appreciates the work she does every day and is looking forward to her continued work. congressman king is joining us now with his thoughts on all this. congressman king, thank you so much for joining us today. >> thank you. >> do you believe that ambassador rice is part of a deliberate cover-up to mislead the public on the events surrounding the attack in banghazi? >> ambassador rice was deliberate misleading the american people or showed a lack of knowledge and sophistication she shouldn't hold that position anymore. the administration has misinformed
is the united nations susan rice. almost two weeks ago she claimed the assault was a spontaneous protest that spun out of control. white house officials admitting it was a coordinated terrorist attack. speaking earlier on fox news, peter king says rice should step down over this. >> the person that was out there. the person that was going to get all the glory, all the morning shows was ambassador rice. to send a clear message to the world and to american people this will not be tolerated, she should resign but also should investigate and find out how high up this went. >> gregg: welcome to a brand-new hour. i'm gregg jarrett. >> heather: i'm heather childers. a new debate rages in washington. what did white house officials know and when did they know it. demand for answers into the shifting accounts coming not just from republicans but lawmakers from both sides of the aisle. attack in benghazi that left four americans dead, including chris stevens, ambassador to libya. molly henneberg is live in washington. >> molly: the white house and state department are defending ambassador susan ric
.s. government response has frankly been confusing. u.n. ambassador susan rice has said the attacks were not preplanned. secretary clinton said she had absolutely no information or reason to believe there is any basis to suggest that the u.s. ambassador was on an al qaeda hit list as a target. the state department said u.s. officials at that post never passed along the warning from the libyan government on militias and security in benghazi. now the administration appears to be backtracking a little bit, at least on the assertion about whether the attack was preplanned or not. but the take-away right now from the administration, when you take a step back and look at this information and the conflicts in the information, appears to be this. the americans on the ground failed to tell washington about the risks, so it isn't the state department's fault that they didn't stop it. well, why so much confusion? chris coons is on the senate foreign relations committee, he has been briefed on the situation. and first, sir, thank you very much for taking the time. let me start and ask you, since i k
are defending ambassador susan rice. a spokesman for barack obama says she has done extraordinary work for the american people. also democratic senator john kerry called rice, quote a remarkable public servant and state department put out a statement defending rice's comments to those sunday shows. the statement said, quote, at every turn, ambassador rice said she was providing the best information and best assessment that the administration had at the time. based on what was provided to ambassador rice and other senator senior intelligence committee but they knew one day of the assault that it was a coordinated terror attack likely tied to al-qaeda. congressman king wants to know why ambassador rice went on tv five days after the attack and said otherwise. >> the entire administration, miss informed the world and she was our representative to the world explaining what happened. virtually everything she said was wrong and the administration is trying to cover it by saying she was given the best information available at the time. >> molly: a spokesperson for james clapper says assessmen
it a terrorist, al-qaeda terror attack and everyone out there, susan rice, hillary clinton, jay carney saying it was the movie. >> bob: with all due respect to our reporting on this, having dealt with the intelligence community for many years they did not confirm this was a terror attack on the 12th. these were intelligence sources who said they believed as i believed and everybody else believed it probably was a terrorist attack. the al-qaeda connection, everybody in eastern libya -- >> eric: bob, bob -- >> bob: let me finish. >> eric: please finish. what you are saying is incorrect. >> bob: it's not incorrect. i bet you whatever you want to bet, there is nothing, any intelligence report. i listened to the intelligence guys sit back and they guess what happened. how would they know? f.b.i. is investigating this. they weren't on the ground. if they knew so much about it, how come cnn got ahold of a diary by the ambassador? it's the most ridiculous concept i've heard. >> eric: so according to our reporter, u.s. officials confirm they had several intelligence assets on the ground, c.i.a. on the
of the house homeland security committee. it all started when susan rice made remarks five days after those attacks. listen here. >> there was a hateful video that was disseminated on the internet. it had nothing to do with the united states government and it's one that we find disgusting and reprehencible. offensive to many, many people around the world. that sparked violence in various parts of the world including against western facilities including our embassies and consulates. >> the obama administration eventually labeled the attack on that consulate in libya terrorism. the chairman of the house homeland security committee peter king thinks there should be consequences to rice's original comments that you heard right there. here's what he said to wolf in "the situation room" friday. >> to rule out terrorism, to say it was not terrorism at that time was, to me, a terrible mistake to make whether it was done intentionally or unintentionally and i believe she should retisign, yes. >> let's bring back obama campaign supporter general wesley clark and rich williamson, former diplomatic, a
they are asking for from ambassador susan rice. the plus this. >> oh. >> ohio. >> oh. bill: i mean it could be the battleground again. the key swing state of ohio. why romney and ryan are there again today. how competitive is it in ohio? >> i need you to find people that went out there and voted for barack obama and convince them to join our team. together we'll strengthen this country and make sure it provides the jobs we need and keep it the hope of the earth! but because of business people like you, things are beginning to get rolling. and regions is here to help. making it easier with the expertise and service to keep those wheels turning. from business loans to cash management, we want to be your partner moving forward. so switch to regions. and let's get going. together. mom's smartphone... dad's tablet... or lauren's smartphone... at&t has a plan built to help make families' lives easier. introducing at&t mobile share. one plan lets you share data on up to 10 devices with unlimited talk and text. add a tablet for only $10 per month. the more data you share, the more you save. at&t. b
shifting response to the september 11 killings. most vividly on display when ambassador susan rice argued on five sunday shows the attack was a protest over anti-islam video gone amok. >> we saw the white house deploy not only ambassador rice but others on the networks throughout that last sunday. and with imparting knowledge or a vie that did not match with reality raises a lot of questions. >> they had to know there were terrorist elements involved. get real with this. >> asked about the senator's charge of coverup instein's case, the white house deputy security advisor ben rose told reporter ace forward air force one today "we have every interest in understanding exactly what happened. precisely so we can make sure we're doing everything we can going forward to protect our diplomats." >> bret: you mentioned the now infamous sunday show rounds for ambassador rice. >> three republican members on the service green written sharply worded letter to ambassador rice saying when she went on the sunday tour, it was clear the attack in libya was a terror attack. >> bret: we will continue to foll
, but they sent out susan rice, hillary clinton, cents out jay carney, everybody top down including the president up until yesterday's blaming something that they know is factually inaccurate. they said that has nothing to do with america, an outright lie, to not only the american people, but the family that lost loved ones. >> yep. the one thing they've decided can't be discussed for the next six weeks is his performance in office. the blame campaign throughout four years has showed you that they're allergic to accountability particularly, but generally when you're allergic to accountability it leads to cover-ups. i've proven they've participated in cover-ups. there's an electronic bonfire in this administration, destroying records. they're on aol for their sleazy programs, the solyndra program and so on. they have a privately-owned computer service for the white house to conduct discussions about confidential troubling u.n. programs that bother a lot of people that they might want to know about this. >> sean: how do you know this? >> from the freedom of information act, investigators, and inter
questions for that as well. the stories about what exactly happened that day. you and ambassador susan rice, on this program, after the attack, said it was a spontaneous response to an anti-muslim film. since then, we have learned that it was on organized attack and that some intelligence and pentagon officials suspected that early on and that's prompted this criticism from governor romney. >> we've seen a confused, slow, and inconsisten t response to the terrorist attack in libya. a refusal to be frank with the american people about what happened. and a complete failure to explain the growing terrorist threat we face in the region. >> the chairman of the homeland security committee peter king has gone even further calling on u.s. ambassador to resign, your response. >> absolutely not. susan rice has done a terrific job. george, there's been an ongoing investigation. an event to great interest to the news media, understandably. so, there's been information provided real-time. you'll know more about an event a week after it happens. >> there were officials in 24 hours after it happened that
and organized terrorist attack. administration officials, including ambassador susan rice, stated that benghazi was a demonstration prompted by the video clip that spun out of crock. fox news, first to report, there was no ongoing demonstration at the consulate when the attack unfolded. the rso who worked for the state department in the middle east tells fox that the u.s. consulate in benghazi had to be classified as a, quote, "critical threat, terrorism, or civil unrest posting," and what fall follows the classification are specific security requirements including reenforced windows and doors. grading is only acceptable for the ambassador residents and not where official business is done. as for the perimeter security, walls have to be three meters in height and buildings set back 100 feet. the enhanced security is designedded to create an hour of safety or golden hour when class fied documents can be burned and emergency evacuation called in. we have asked the state department tonight whether the consulate met the security requirements, and if not, if approved, the state department spokeswoma
insulting to muslims they knew it was a tres attack. kirsten, was there a coverup? why would they send susan rice so many days later on the talk shows to claim it's spontaneous. >> that's the question. it does appear a coverup and i have been-- judy has been trying to track down exactly what happened and many reporters asking questions and you're told she was operating under the best information she had and clear she was couching is as the latest information a, but she was specific, that's the problem it was just contrary to common sense and to even compare it to what happened in cairo, to say the movie called it. the same thing, that terroris terrorists-- protesters don't carry rpg's anded media has a lack of curiosity about this and should be holding their feet to the fire. >> there's also another element. the 24/7 news cycle, the desire to get something out into the public arena quickly often brings mistakes like this. and i think of colin powell and the demonstration at the u.n. supposedly wmd's in iraq and then he went on all the sunday talk shows. he was talking about what he thought a
the beginning. it's the video, it's the video. >> no. >> bill: wait a minute. he sent susan rice out there, jay carney. sent them out there for days telling the american people that on the anniversary of 9/11, the attacks on all of our embassies, the death of four americans, was all related to this video, nothing to do with the u.s., nothing to do with the anniversary of 9/11. >> right. >> bill: why does he keep promoting it, so if anybody doesn't know about it they will? >> no. he said in his speech, not just this video, but any video that goes against christianity, offends christianity, jews, anti-semitism, any of that has no place, but it's also no excuse for violence. he made that very clear in the speech, sean. i mean, he did. that's the facts. i mean, the thing is he -- he sat on the world stage and gave that speech, and i thought it was exactly what he needed to say. >> joe, there is no way he could have -- he should have referred to the video almost 10 times in that speech. look, this is a president who is trying to hide the fact that we knew ahead of time that september 11th was going
